Tuesday 08 July 2014
According to research from American Express, a third of Brits say that uncovering local secrets and the hidden gems of a destination make holidays that little bit more memorable.
So, while in Ibiza, Amex Insider Alex Zane took a look at the lesser-known side of this popular party destination. Escaping Ibiza’s Balearic beats, he explores the beautiful island from the saddle of a mountain bike, revealing a unique and family-friendly side to this much-loved holiday hotspot.
With breathtaking scenery and stunning sea views that cannot be seen from the road, the island’s beauty opens up once you jump on a bike and get off the tourist trails. Down narrow winding tracks are endless hidden coves, picturesque bays and stunning views known only to locals. With routes to suit all abilities, cycling in Ibiza is perfect for all members of the family.
Mr Zane chats to locals and discovers some of the island’s secret stories, telling you a few things about Ibiza that you might not already know. So next time you hit the golden isle, you can experience an altogether different holiday.
